    I think it would be cool. I think here is the only site that does not have it yet.

    We've brought this up over the years. This site would need a full overhaul too so that, and then do we really want things like downvotes? I don't think so. That's not what this site is founded on.

    A down vote would let someone know they probably said something stupid, whereas now you have to post a reply, then get accused of attacking someone. It is much more subtle.

    No need to be subtle if you use a little tact and be respectful.

    We'll see what the future brings and if the new format has those or not. But I agree it's less confrontational nudge, except people abuse the thumbs up/down etc. on other forums too. We'll see. There just BETTER be a heart emojie on the next one lol (Horkn & savemoney ) lol

    Doesn’t that already happen when an unpopular comment doesn’t get any likes?:whistle: I agree with Tom I think downvotes on this site are a bad idea.
